Old Red Barn

re: Derk Smit - Old Red Barn (artwork #9670)

Derk Smit (1889-1985)

Old Red Barn

Oil on Board
20 x 24 inches
Signed Lower Right
The setting for this piece is Brown County, IN. Recently cleaned; contains minimal in-painting; recent frame.

“Derk Smit was born in the Netherlands and emigrated to Chicago in his 20s, where he worked as an interior decorator as he took up a love for painting. He ‘retired’ to Brown County around 1950 where he lived and painted for around five years before double-retiring to Laguna Beach, CA in the mid 1950s where he remained the balance of his long life. He produced a steady output of oils from both locations.

Today’s first painting, The Red Barn, is a Brown County piece, nicely executed and very typical of his impressionistic Brown County landscapes. It is in excellent condition, nicely framed and ready to hang."
